This book was incredibly informative as well as readable. Each chapter of this book could have been a whole book on its own. It was precise without getting too technical and insightful without getting drowned out in philosophy, and where there exists debates in the yoga community it reverted back to "how do you feel". This is an incredible resource just for my home practice, and I can't wait to start incorporating some of the sequences.
I have Mark Stephens other book, which I owned even before I began teaching yoga, and cherish the information in that one. I love this book as a resource for my yoga teaching now,as I have evolved and gotten more confidence, and am ready to play with class sequence more. This book gets in depth on class flow and how to sequence for a variety of students and populations. It's precise, easy to read(plus you can jump around easily, if you need to reference something!), and full of information.

I ordered this book looking for ideas for creative yoga sequencing. I got ideas but not necessarily ideas I will use. It was good to read a different philosophy and approach to yoga and be able to compare to what I have learned. While there was some overlap and consistency, there were differences of opinion. I will use bits and pieces but the majority of my students could not approach yoga the way it is laid out in most of the 65 sequences he provides. That is not to say there are not many peopl ...more
Exceptional tool

Great detail on sequencing classes for any level, plus information on specialty classes. Logical methodology explained and illustrations clearly detail class flow.

Loved the whole book. As a beginner teacher it gave me an abundance of courage.

I highly recommend the two Mark Stephens books I've read - He not only touches on the traditional approaches to yoga sequencing and how a teacher can adjust a practice to a wide variety of students, but he also addresses specific practices to the gunas, chakra specific practices, age specific practices and principles on how to create your own structured classes.
Fantastic textbook for the dedicated yoga practitioner. Nice break-down of poses and their uses with multiple sequences for beginner through advance. Includes yoga for kids, pregnant women in different trimesters, seniors, etc. I would file this book under Yogini Desk (mat) Reference.

I will likely be flipping through this book for years. My only suggestion is to add ideas for helping transition students from beginning to intermediate, and then to advanced. And also, deconstructing more difficult poses, especially head and handstands.

As a newish teacher I refer to this book almost weekly. It's like my asana bible. A must have for a vinyasa or similar teacher.
